wedge set up with burner 2.0 irons and iron question

9 posts in this topic

i have a new burner 2.0 iron set graphite shafts 4-9 + pw (45 degrees) + sw (55 degrees)

my question would be what degree wedge would i need accompanying this to be the most ideal.

Also, on my old set i had bought a 21 degree hybrid to replace the 3 iron, but in this set, the 4 iron is a 21 degree. is it worth keeping the 21 degree hybrid in the bag or taking it out. i have 13 clubs with it, 12 without.

driver, 3 and 5 wood, 21 degree hybrid, 4-9 iron, pw,sw and putter

thank you

On the hybrid question: I'd actually pick one or the other if I were you, whatever you're more comfortable with. If long irons baffle you (they certainly still baffle me) then go with the hybrid. You can always swap it out for the iron if your shotmaking improves over time. My thought is: if the ball is 4-iron distance away from the hole, I wouldn't want to have to pick between two clubs that theoretically do the same thing... "Dammit, shoulda gone with the (hybrid/iron) instead!" would probably become a popular phrase...

With the wedges... well, technically a gap wedge (approx. 50-54 degrees, usually 52) fits in between the PW and SW, but that'd be kinda weird having a non-matching club between two matching ones. You may wanna ditch your sand wedge and get a matching wedge set (gap, sand, lob - 52,56,60). You certainly have room in your bag for it.

These days, I don't see the point of matching sand wedges in sets if there isn't a gap wedge there first. No offense of course. Taylor burners are cool clubs after all...

Hope all these thoughts help.

ok makes sense about the hybrid, although i notice that my hybrid has a longer shaft so i hit the ball a couple yards further, and also when i am playing a bad round, i dont have the confidence to hit with my low irons, so then i just use the hybrid.

thank you on your information about the wedges, right now il probably just get a 50 or 52 degree to solve as my gap wedge, but next time i am upgrading my set, i will buy a whole wedge set like you suggested

on a totally different note, can anyone tell me how to make like that little note on the end of each message for whats in my bag, like almost everyone has it and it shows what each person uses, for somereason i cant seem to be able to make one or find out where to make one.

thank you

Yeah, they don't let you do that signature until you've been a member for 10 days and have at least 10 posts, if I'm not mistaken... Don't worry, it'll come soon.

With the wedges though... The choice is yours, but dude, you just got new clubs... I highly suggest you don't use a band-aid solution on your new set!

Before you make your decision though... something like THIS may solve your problem...

Boom. A MATCHING gap wedge. Now if you bought this, kept your sand wedge, and added something in the 58-60 range for short shots and chipping, you'd really have a complete set.

PS: I do believe those gap wedges have a standard loft at 50 degrees... I looked at some other eBay listings for Burner 2.0 gap wedges and they said 50 degrees.

I myself just bought the Driver(10.5 Deg), 3W, 5W, 3H(18 Deg), 4-9irons, PW(45 Deg), AW(50 Deg) Wedges all Burner 2.0's and a SW(56 Deg) TM ATV + putter. Which makes 14 total clubs. I got myself a 3H because of not having the confidence of hitting my 4I and never looked back. I hit the hybrid a lot more consistent then the long iron. On Wedges, The AW came with the set when I made the purchase but to tell you the truth, I haven't used it at all. From about 100yrds I use my PW, anything closer I use my SW with adjusting my swings (full, 3/4, 1/2 etc.) I guess it's all personal preference on the wedges. But I love my Burner 2.0 I just got into the game of golf about 6 months ago. Damn I'm addicted to it. LOL.

You need a US friend who will ship to you.

Just don't give up. The club exists dude. Or, if you buy a gap wedge, get a matching sand wedge, and ditch yours.

Choice is yours, but I think everyone here would agree that the round-peg-square-hole solution is not a good one.

    • From this, it actually looks like he gets the club back on plane through impact. This is wild.
    • That's an exaggeration. He's obviously shown that he has the potential to compete but he struggles with consistency month to month. I think everyone who watches golf underestimates just how rare it is to have back to back seasons as the likes of Tiger, Jack, or Arnold- especially in a field as talented as it is in 2016. I'm a huge believer that these past few seasons have been some of the best tour golf ever played in the history of the game, especially when it's looked at in terms of depth. Week to week, it's really anyone's tournament to take, and it hasn't always been like that.
    • Trump paying out the $1M to a wealthy individual is a non-story.  The entire story is a non-story, I haven't seen it mentioned on any of the news channels and beyond a cut and paste no one else is covering it.  If this was something the democrats or liberal media really thought could hurt Trump we'd be hearing about it constantly.  No one cares when rich guys get into a dispute, there's no damage control to be done here. The real reason it's even in the news is because Trump's charity (not his golf course) paid out money to Greenberg's charity and it was a potential inappropriate use of the charity funds.  
      I'm guessing those that voted Trump should pay are basing this off their general dislike for Trump or his platform as a POTUS candidate.  Anyone who read the facts and didn't have a bias against Trump would conclude paying off Greenberg was not Trump's responsibility.  
    • Genetics definitely play a role, but not as much as people think. If you have a 6 foot frame to work with from the get-go, you will obviously be able to make a bigger swing with less effort than someone who stands 5 feet tall with shorter arms. A bigger swing path = more time to gain momentum through impact. This is where technique and flexibility come into play, though. Having a large frame/swing only correlates to distance if you can do two things, 1) swing at a high rate of speed through the slot, 2) maintain a square club face on impact. I am not a tall or big person by any means, but I gain a lot of my strokes by being able to hit a wedge or low iron into the majority of holes I play. The biggest adjustment to my game that I made in order to hit the long ball has been working on my shoulder flexibility as well as timing my hip turn. If you are a smaller person and want to improve distance, you should first make sure you are able to hit the ball squarely, but after, elongate the path of your lead arm without compromising your spine alignment and swing plane. It definitely isn't something that happens in one range session as it oftentimes takes multiple seasons in order to find 15-25 yards from the tee. But genetics definitely are not the only thing that factor into hitting big drives, I would say it is much more contingent on technique and timing than anything else.  
    • Actually it is not. It's taking something that people will perceive is bad associated with you, your brands and your business as Trump and making sure it doesn't affect you negatively. People saying it's not his fault and would be bad business are failing to see the big picture. He generates so much money off of his name and reputation and brand that if something is associated with him negatively, wrong or right, it could have already cost him far more than a million dollars of revenue or EBITDA.  And this was another executive  not sure I want the word on street to be that I didn't make good for another CEO. It's the same reason why when Chik Fil A made a statement about gay marriage they also were outside handing out free bottles of water to protesters. And their sales went even higher!  They controlled the message and paid for it and what happened?  They came out winners. There are multiple examples of this in business. That's why I disagree with @iacasand with @newtogolf  And apparently over 70 percent of the voters on this poll agree.  Ultimately we can have our own opinions on it and that's mine.
